MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky (KFVS) - Two passengers hospitalized after crash blamed on weather.

According to McCracken County Sheriff Jon Hayden, Saturday's afternoon's heavy wind pushed two cars driving along Interstate 24 near Paducah into the median.

One of those cars landed in the opposite lanes.

A tour bus carrying 44-45 people crashed into that car just after 3:30 p.m.  

Sheriff Hayden tells Heartland News all the passengers on the bus and the driver were taken to local hospitals.

No one in either car was injured.

We're told no one has life threatening injuries, but the sheriff expects at least two of the bus passengers to remain in the hospital.

According to the Sheriff, the bus was heading back to Swansea, Illinois from a trip to Alabama.
